Just 15 minutes off the Pacific Highway NSW at Taree, The Meadow is a hidden gem located at the rear of our 100 acre property in the heart of the beautiful Manning Valley. If you love nature and lots of space then this is the perfect place for you. The Meadow is about as far from a commercial caravan park as you can get! There are a dozen rustic firepits, scattered across 5 mowed acres of grass, surrounded by horse paddocks and a creek. Your booking includes a free bag of firewood on arrival and additional bags can be purchased on site for just $10. 

Bo Bo Creek runs beside the entire campsite and provides beautiful shade where you can escape from the heat and cool off in the crystal clear water. As it is dependent on rainfall there are no fish but plenty of yabbies to catch and release. We also have a large dam with a kayak which is perfect for swimming, SUP, inflatables or RC boats. Kids will love our Koala Walk with information about native wildlife and our trails are safe for bike riding. Little ones will love our Enchanted Fairy Forest and playground. Take a stroll around the farm or just kick back and relax with a cold drink at The Sunset Spot where you can view stunning sunsets over the rolling hills. Our farm is full of horses, cows, calves and wildlife including our very special resident koalas. There is so much to see and do, you wont be disappointed.

This is a picturesque rural property where we encourage guests to embrace the natural surroundings and step away from the stresses of every day life. Loud music, group parties, dirt bikes, drones and unruly behavior are not welcome here. Bluebell Hill is our home and we live here all year round so we ask all visitors to respect our property.

The price listed is for 2 adults to set up at a firepit and each site can be booked for up to 10 people. If you are with friends or a group of people, it is cheaper to book together at one site. Additional adults and children in your group are priced separately and children 0-2 are FREE. Well behaved, sociable, non-barking dogs on leads are permitted by request, just message Karen with details of your furry friend for approval.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE MEADOW IS OFF-GRID WITH NO AMENITIES. YOU MUST SELF-CONTAINED IE BYO TOILET, SHOWER, DRINKING WATER.

Karen and Ian's property is an absolute credit to them. Short mowed grass, no litter like other camps and would win a 'tidy town' award if contested. great views, walks and history to keep you active. We will be back. Kerry & Moyra.

We had an excellent time! The sites were spread out, the access to the creek was lovely and the circuit around the property with playground, koala walk, dam with canoe and fairy garden kept us very entertained. Hosts were lovely and helpful
We would love to return

We love Bluebell! We think The Meadow was at it's very best and the creek is different each time we visit. The horses are friendly, Karen and Ian are wonderful hosts ! It's a peaceful place to unwind and relax. We were lucky to be the only campers on our first night then only one other couple the next. We can't wait until we go again which will be soon.

From the moment you arrived you are greeted with a friendly welcome.
The camping area is large and clean with a lovely creek running close to the area.
With only a limited amount of campers allowed there is plenty of room to have a quite time.

Beautiful farm stay and so handy having the firewood and fire pits. The creek was so blue and the enchanted forest was a cute touch. 10/10 from Sam and Yasmin.
